The Gamekeeper, Old Buckenham

Welcome to the Gamekeeper. Situated at the heart of

Old Buckenham, England’s largest village green.

The Gamekeeper is a family-friendly pub, offering a warm welcome, local ale, fine wines, and excellent food.

The Gamekeeper has seen many changes over the years, yet still retains the charm of a traditional village pub.

The 17th Century Grade II listed building overlooks the pastures and ponds of Old Buckenham, and is easily accessible from Norwich and Diss.

Surrounded by countryside and steeped in local medieval history, the pub has been recently re-furbished to a high standard.


Founded in 1981, Woodforde’s is home to a wide range of craft beers and traditional ales including two Supreme Champion Beers of Britain, and the FIFTYTWO° NORTH collection of craft beers. Named in honour of Parson James Woodforde, an 18th Century clergyman who wrote lovingly in his diaries of a love for good food & great beer, our story starts in the 1960’s during the new-wave revolution of home brewers creating authentic flavours & crafting their own beers.


Food & drink

Our food is inspired by our surroundings, and our well accomplished chefs produce locally sourced dishes perfectly accompanied by a wide range of carefully selected wines, and the freshest Woodforde’s hand drawn ales and own craft range, FIFTYTWO° NORTH.
